Duliʹa

.

An inferior degree of worship or veneration, such as that paid by Roman Catholics to saints and angels; Hyper-duliʹa is a superior sort of veneration reserved for the Virgin; but that worship which is paid to God alone is called latriʹa. “Dulia” means that sort of veneration which slaves pay to their lords (Greek, doulos, a slave); “Latria” means that sort of veneration which mortals pay to the gods (Greek, latreuʹo, to worship the gods).
